This interface is one of three concepts designed as part of my PhD dissertation. Working in partnership with an Alberta-based oil company, my goal is to produce alternatives to human-machine interfaces for use in the manufacturing process. Specifically, I am looking to design interfaces that support human decision making, enable accountability, and the leveraging of individual and collective knowledge.
